Albertsons banners - including Acme - to expand e-commerce

On the heels of a recent analyst report recommending that food retailers slow their e-commerce efforts, MyWebGrocer announced that several Albertsons banners - including Acme - plan to add "click-and-collect" and delivery service on its platform. Albertsons has used MyWebGrocer's software since 2012 for online shopping lists and circulars.

A report released earlier this month by Tabs Analytics reported that just 4.5% of all shoppers are using the Internet to buy groceries six or more times per year, and concluded that "consumers have turned their backs on buying groceries online."
